. >>> debate bound, mitt romney erasing president obama's lead. this is a new poll. a major shift on women voters as well. an an injection of enthusiasm. we go inside the numbers with four weeks left. >>> and biggest jump ever. one man, literally falling from the edge of outer space, 23 miles straight down on purpose. why? and will he make it? >> that is the question. why? what is the craziest thing you've ever done. >> it's not jumping 23 miles straight down from outer space. that's a high bar. >> i can't wait to talk to him and find out the why. >> it's nuts. good morning, thank you for joining us on "early start," i'm john berman. >> and i'm zoraida sambolin. >>> jerry sandusky proclaims his innocence. in four wurhours, the former pe state football coach will be in court to find out his punishment. he is clearly defiant. >> they can take away my life, they can make me out as a monster, they could treat me as a monster but they can't take away my heart. in my heart, i know i did not do these alleged, disgusting acts. >> he takes no personal responsibility. he lays the blame for his fate
week's debate puts romney firmly in the lead of president obama, 49 to 45. in the same poll in september, the president had a 51-43 lead. romney seems to be gaining ground with women. in a moment, i will ask polling guru nate silver what it all really means. meanly, a newly energized candidate romney is wasting no time pressing his advantage, today hitting the president with tough talk on foreign policy, including the deadly attack on americans in libya. >> this latest assault can't be blamed on a reprehensible video insulting islam, despite the administration's attempts to convince us of that for so long. no, as the administration has finally conceded, these attacks were the deliberate work of terrorists who use violence to impose their dark ideology on others, especially on women and girls who are fighting to control much of the middle east today and who seek to wage perpetual war on the west. >> joining me now, a man who knows quite a lot about mitt romney's views on all this, norm coleman, advisor to the romney campaign on foreign policy and former senator from minnesota
on roll since the first presidential debate. check out this new cnn poll of polls. mitt romney has a two-point lead over president obama in that national poll there. here is the story in ohio where president obama holds a three-point lead. romney will be in ohio today campaigning. >> now, he's looking to capitalize on the momentum from the first presidential debate. debate number two is tuesday, but thursday's vp debate is still a hot topic on the trail. cnn political national correspondent jim acosta has more. >> randi and victor, the debate after the debate has been about substance most notably the vice president's comments on libya. >> i feel great. >> reporter: at breakfast after his fiery debate, paul ryan still had his sunny side up. >> no, it's what i expected. ryan offered no complaints about biden's aggressive performance, which was designed to put some points on the president's scoreboard, whether it was on ryan's past request for stimulus money. >> on two situations -- >> reporter: or ryan's attempt to compare mitt romney to jack kennedy. >> now you're jack kennedy. >> reporte
our cnn poll of polls had a three-point edge, actually, at this point for governor romney. what decides this election, or is it multi-determined? >> it is multi-determined, and one thing you can bank on, the florida election will be close on election night, where i think -- >> do you think? >> maybe. maybe. i think -- i think it all depends on these next two debates. it's fair to say that i think, you know, governor romney has a three-point lead in some polls. mason dixon had him with a seven-point lead. i think it's in the three, four point range. this election could maybe not be close. >> do you sense it moving away from -- clearly, al senses it moving away from the president in florida. do you sense that? >> no, not at all. the obama team has registered more voters in florida than we ever dreamed to do. we've got more than 100 offices on the ground, but most importantly, the economic facts in florida -- florida went through a very difficult time. 220,000 new jobs in florida in the last 31 months. president supports a robust space program. the differences on medicare, the fact
a tracking poll of likely voters here, likely voters added to the mix. you see the numbers. romney at 49, above obama at 47%. again, among as it points out, likely voters. it is at least the third poll since sunday showing romney leading obama, very, very significant. so is team obama, you know, pushing the panic button? apparently not. not from the ad -- the campaign released today. take a look. >> big bird. >> big bird. >> big bird. >> it's me, big bird. >> big, yellow, a menace to our economy. mitt romney knows it is not wall street you have to worry about, it is sesame street. >> the ad follows romney's plan to cut funding for pbs. sesame street declaring itself nonpartisan is asking team obama to take that ad down. a romney spokesman says it is alarming the president is talking about sesame street a month before the election. >>> tonight, wolf blitzer has live interview with mitt romney, 6:00 eastern, only here on cnn. tune in for that. then jump ahead to thursday. it is the vice presidential debate, joe biden versus paul ryan, cnn special live coverage begins 7:00 eastern, 4:00 pac
of blunt romney's momentum, which is beginning to show up in the polls. we haven't seen anything truly definitive, but we know most people thought that mitt romney won the debate. democrats are looking for biden to blunt that momentum. can he do that? >> of course, joe biden, again, knows how to communicate very, very well. i think when people talk about last week, expectations for president obama are always exceedingly high and it was relatively easy for mr. romney who had an 11th hour conversion. we recall that he is the etch-a-sketch guy that has transformed himself and quite frankly, we always have to wonder which mitt is going to show up. so if you just lay out lie after lie after lie about your own plan as well as what the president has been talking about, of course, you can look good. vice president biden will do very, very well. he knows what has been going on. he is in touch with the american public, and i'm just hopeful mr. ryan will tell the truth. whether it's about medicare and that it's a voucher program, that mr. romney and mr. ryan, their health care plan will lead to m
and there you go. a new poll of likely voters shows romney has edged ahead of president obama and the numbers say it clearly, 49% to 45%. cnn's political editor paul steinhauser joins me live from washington as he does almost daily with the numbers story. but i want you to put this one in perspective. is this a huge deal 28 days until election day? >> that's right, four weeks to go until the election, and let's go back to the pew poll number because it does suggest that mitt romney got a bounce out of the debate last wednesday in denver, colorado. let's go to the numbers on the left. you can see the new numbers. this is the new poll from pew and it indicates romney with a four-point advantage, within the sampling error but look at the september numbers, an eight poi eight-point advantage for the president. let's go to gallup. this is of registered voters conducted both before and after the debate and you can see the president with a five-point advantage. so it is interesting, two different polls, two different stories here. we're going sto see a couple moe national polls to get a sense of how
to break the sound barrier in a jump from the edge the space. >>> a new poll shows mitt romney out in front. the president's poor debate performance apparently giving the challenger a boost. but for how long? >>> companies are now using the election to sell their products. "newsroom" starts now. >>> good morning to you. thank you so much for joining us. i'm carol costello. one of the most reviled men in the country faces sentencing. the hearing is scheduled to start right now for convicted child rapist jerry sandusky, former football coach at penn state faces life in prison for 45 counts of child sex abuse. a ajury found he sexually abused ten boys over a 15-year period. some of those victims and sandusky himself are expected to address the judge during this morning's aproceedings. the most stunning development may have come hours ago, releasing an audio recording from jail, saying he is the victim. >> they can take away my life. they can make me out as a monster. they can treat me as a monster but they can't take away my heart. in my heart i know i did not do these alleged, disgust iing ac
't say any more that debates don't matter. the new cnn poll, poll of polls, mitt romney has a slight lead with likely voters, 48% to 47%. his performance certainly showed that you can't say it doesn't matter anymore. there is no bigger swing state than ohio, where you are. >> reporter: the history tells you no republican has ever been elected president without winning the state of ohio. can you do the math and have romney win without this state? yes. is it likely? no. before the debate some polls had him down as many as nine points in ohio. new cnn poll row leased last night has him down four, 51-47. another group, american research group show ed romney up a point in ohio. no question. just like in the national polls, a bit of a boost. romney is up in the suburbs, up among independents. there's signs of strength here from romney, we can tell you there are a few soft spots he needs to work on. >> john king in ohio, covering the debates as well. thank you very much. watch live coverage of the debate tomorrow night, 7:00 eastern. watch it on cnn or on cnn.com. >>> happening this morning, the
, mitt romney trails in florida and is down six in ohio. a quinnipiac poll shows him up three points in three other states. cnn's paul steinhauser is at the site in danville, kentucky with an inside look. >> reporter: 14 hours from now behind me on this stage, the only vice presidential debate in the campaign. they've been behind closed doors getting ready for this big showdown. the republican running mate got here to kentucky yesterday. before he arrived, he played a little bit of the expectations game, kind of lowering the bar for himself. >> joe biden has been on this stage many times before. it's my first time. sure it's a nervous situation because joe biden is one of the most experienced debaters we have in modern politics. >> as for vice president joe biden, he gets here later today. how is it going to work? to tell us. frank farencoff. >> it will be similar to the start of the colorado debate except that these two will be seated at a table. the vice president will be on the left. the congressman will be on the right. by flip of a coin -- we're very scientific in these things,
, basically a dead heat here between the president and between mitt romney when you look at that national poll of polls, as well. randi, victor. >> those are interesting numbers because they have moved a little bit, haven't they? >> ohio has gotten closer. you're right, a little more advantage advantage for the president but we have seen the polls tighten up. so much is at stake on tuesday for the second debate. >> no question about it. >> paul steinhauser, thank you. >>> while the experts and analysts sifted through the facts, what did people at home w wonder about. the top internet searches right after the debate, biden, conflating, malarkey. how he described some of paul ryan's facts. >>> here is another google nugget. just type in the words completely wrong into the images search and what you get are mitt romney pictures and quotes over and over, page after page. google says it's not intentional. it's just the result of normal search algorithms. now google algorithms. we'll see what happens. >>> at the vice presidential debate on thursday, one of the bigger issues was the attack on the u.s
.com for the latest throughout the day. >>> a new cnn/orc poll showed mitt romney registered a big bounce in the buckeye state after the first presidential debate. likely ohio voters now have the president's lead dwindling to four points, that's well within the margin of error. that makes the race for ohio's 18 electoral votes a statistical tie. before the debate some polls showed the president leading by as many as ten points. no republican has won the presidency without carrying ohio. >> i think there's probably relief from the obama side that our poll shows him leading through. >>> nine minutes after the hour, mitt romney is not running from big bird. in fact, he's embracing big bird after his pledge to cut funding from pbs. the obama camp went on the offensive accusing the republican nominee of trying to kill the popular "sesame street" character. but romney is not backing down. listen to what he told wolf blitzer in "the situation room" last night. >> big sbird going to be just fine. "sesame street" is a very successful enterprise. i don't believe cnn gets government funding but some
to the polls. in a new politico/george washington university poll 86% of those who backed romney say they're extremely likely to vote compared to 73% who support obama. that poll was taken before the president's lackluster debate performance. a performance that's still being widely trashed. >> number two, open up more trade. especially with latin america. >> the anniversary gift. i can't believe i forgot the anniversary gift. this is bad. this is very bad. okay. i was tdistracted by the mess i inherited from bush. but, still, i should have remembered our anniversary. >> former house speaker newt gingrich says, remember that weird moment with clint eastwood's empty chair? it's become symbolic. in their latest cover the new yorker magazine seems to agree with gingrich. take a look. empty podium. empty chair. it pretty much says it all. >>> polls aside, enthusiasm does seem to be gaining for romney. he attracted nearly 9,000 people at rally in florida sunday. he raised 12 million tl$12 mill donations right after the debate. still romney remains in a statistical tie with the president. most p
of the race. it does look like mitt romney is getting a bounce out of the debate. a gallup poll taken over seven days your bre break it down, in three days since the debate the race is tied at 47%. the three days prior to the debate, a five--point lead for president obama. that gone over the last three days. gallup asked who won the debate. last wednesday among debate watchers, 97% of republicans said mitt romney won, 70% of independents said mitt romney won, and 49% of democrats gave it to romney. >>> meanwhile president obama's debate performance left a big opening for the folks at "saturday night live." >> number 20 -- >> excuse me, governor. mr. president? >> i'm sorry. yeah. yeah, what's up? >> mr. president. governor has just said that he killed osama bin laden. would you care to respond? >> um, no, you two go ahead. >> not bad. big bird made a surprise appearance on weekend update, he took the high road when addressing romney's pledge to eliminate money for public television. mr. bird said he didn't want to ruffle any feathers. >> thank you very much. so as we inch toward election d
you've seen, and the polls show it, the romney/ryan ticket has momentum. the polls have tightened in recent days following mitt romney's performance, where he obviously won that debate. there's a lot more attention here. if joe biden is able to perform very well -- and he's a pretty good debater. if he's able to perform pretty well perhaps he can stem some of that momentum, at least dampen a little criticism heading into the debate next week in new york, buy the president a little time. if paul ryan clearly dominates in this debate it will be seen very much as a one-two punch and that will just mean more momentum. >> they've been, as we call it in college, cramming. how have both of them been preparing? >> reporter: yeah. it is like cramming. i think it's sort of like going back, studying for -- one aide told me it's like studying for the s.a.t.s in the middle of a campaign. they go over a lot of briefing materials. they're brushing up on domestic and foreign policy, getting to certainly know each other's positions on everything. there's a lot of sort of time spent aalone where th
this poll this is a recent poll that shows more americans trusting obama over romney on foreign policy. do you think, though, that maybe, maybe team romney senses an opportunity, an opening here? >> yes, they definitely sense an opening as a result of what happened in benghazi, libya. i think the president has been popular as far as foreign policy is concerned as he got all the u.s. troops out of iraq, no more u.s. troops in iraq. americans are war weary, if you will, he's got a timeline to getting all u.s. troops out of afghanistan. but probably much more important than that, brooke, is that he managed to kill bin laden. that is something very, very popular. so i was a little surprised that romney went after the president in this speech today on iraq, because getting u.s. troops out of iraq has generally been popular, though romney did make valid points. the iraqi government, nuri al maliki is moving closer and closer to iran, it's facilitating iranian supplies of weapons to syria. this is not a good aftermath of all the years of struggle in iraq for sure. getting americans out of iraq th
the edge of space to earth. want to get right to it. mitt romney gaining some ground here. in a poll taken after wednesday night's debate, three days before the debate, president obama had a 5% point edge among registered voters. hoping to build on the momentum, romney this morning attacked the president's leadership when it comes to foreign policy. ♪ >>> romney delivered his first major foreign policy speech at virginia military institute in lexington. it is the country's oldest military academy. he came out swinging. he condemned the president for what he says is leading from behind, declaring it is time to change course in the middle east. want to bring in our foreign affairs correspondent jill dougherty at the state department. first of all, the first criticism was that he said the president didn't have this overall strategy that would be successful in the middle east. let's listen. >> i know the president hopes for a safer, freer, and more prosperous middle east aallied with us. i share this hope, but hope is not a strategy. we can't support our friends and defeat our enemies in the
overly aggressive. >> romney has enjoyed a post-debate bounce in national polls, and a boost of confidence on the campaign trail. >> there's more energy and passion. people are getting behind this campaign. >> at a town hall without a podium and with audience interaction, the candidate's style and body language can take on added weight. at the first town hall style presidential debate in 19 2 president george h.w. bush repeaedly checked his watch, a sign some thought that he didn't want to be there. commentators said bill clinton walking toward the audience to answer a question about the recession highlighted his ability to connect with voters. one thing that can make it hard for a candidate to be aggressive is a question like this. >> can we focus on the issues and not the personalities and the mud? >> analysts say the format could be got a for the president. >> he will be able to draw from that energy, from the energy of the public and the crowd. >> as for romney -- >> one of his big challenges during this entire campaign has been not being able to connect with the common m
of what you see in the polls. this momentum that's very much on the side of mitt romney. and paul ryan. so it is very much up to vice president biden to take a shot here and try to stop some of that momentum because if you see a win by paul ryan, it's covered as a one-two punch. the momentum will continue. we know talking to some of the vice president's aides that he's going to come out swinging. this's the expectation, to be on offense. we've been told he's eager, feeling good and trying to draw a contrast. when you look at the tiny table in the picture, brooke, it is a pretty intimate setting. if he's going to get in to it and draw a contrast, that's sort of code for confrontation. we'll see if he makes good on the promise of the team. >> bring yaannbrianna, do they say something memorable, as in not in a good way memorable? >> reporter: you'll remember he's sort of known as a bit of a gaffe machine. puts in his foot in his mouth from time to time. he said that the middle class buried for four years and that was something that the romney campaign just jumped on. the thing is, while he's
some new numbers this morning on that race. the recommend montana poll shows president obama with a two-point lead over mitt romney. what's interesting in the numbers is only one democrat has won arizona in the past 60 years and that was bill clinton in 1996. both of the vermontal candidates are back in their home states today. paul ryan is in wisconsin and president biden is in delaware. at a fund-raiser yesterday biden talked about the difference between the candidates and he offered this. quote, every presidential race every race comes down twho they thing has character and conviction. it will not surprise you on that score. i don't even think it's close between president obama and governor romney. >> let joe be joe is what president obama said before the debate and that's skpanlly what "saturday night live" had fun with last night. >> mr. biden, i know you're under a lot of duress but it would do everything good if you -- >> you don't scare me, shark eyes. you think you're tougher than me because you do the px 90 workout? let me tell you. there's jim strong and old manner. you want
obama than paul ryan did for mitt romney. >> but when you look at the cnn/orc poll that asks the question, who is in touch with the problems of people like you -- this is an area in which joe biden is considered to be very, very strong, right? he is the guy who talks to the middle class, did that a lot last night in the debate. it was actually paul ryan who was ahead. the polling there was 51% for paul ryan, 44% for joe biden. doesn't that make it impossible to read that as a victory for the democrats in an area that joe biden is supposed to be really strong in? >> i think these snap polls right after the debate aren't necessarily the best snapshot of how voters really feel about these debates. and they take a look at it over the course of time and see whose facts added up and whose facts didn't add up. when you saw paul ryan really pressed on the math of their tax plan, it opened that argument all the over again. because he really just couldn't make the math work. and he couldn't explain it in a way that the american people could be comfortable with. now, he says that there'
. mitt romney's big win in last week's debate, of course, receiving now about, we understand, in the polls how long it's going to last, we really don't know. that question, of course, could be answered tonight. we're talking about this one and only vice presidential debate from our senior political analyst and national editorial director and, ron, you and i were at those vice presidential debates. last go round back in 2008 when a record 70 million people watch that night. there was so much excitement, and i think there was a lot of curiosity, how sarah palin was going to go up against joe biden and a lot that came out of that debate. what do we make of the expectations tonight between biden and now ryan? >> well, first of all, i would be surprised if the audience was as big as it was in 2008 when sarah palin was a political and cultural phenomenon. the romney-obama debate received an enormous audience, even bigger than we expected. i was at the last debate in danville, the vice presidential debate between joe lieberman and dick cheney, but i think the analogy here, the model
joe. >> reporter: look what happened since the first presidential debate. governor romney has momentum. moved ahead of the president by a smidgen in the national polls. caught up or gained ground in several key battleground states, ohio, virginia, florida, colorado, and a built of a breeze at his back and republicans think they have momentum. in this debate, americans pick presidents, not vice-presidents. not to downplay the stakes, but the presidential debates are more important. if joe biden can turn a strong performance maybe halt the republican momentum. if paul ryan can, republicans keep the momentum going into next week. >> john, playing sound bites leading into a lot of these debates. one that gets played over and over has been the famous sound bite where dan quayle essentially got his clock cleared. i knew jack kennedy and you're not jack kennedy, but that turned well for mr. quayle. >> he became the vice president of the united states. didn't he? a not so strong debate performance. overshadowed, out-debated by the elder lloyd benson back in 1988. i remember it well. my first p
romney is a guy car. they keep misquoting him but let me tell you about the mitt romney i know. >> all right. so the cnn orc poll immediately after the debate found it to be basically a tie, maybe paul ryan a slight edge, 48% to 44%. anna, do you agree with those poll numbers or do you think there was a clear winner? >> i'm a republican pundit so i'm supposed to tell you i saw paul ryan crush joe biden but i took some truth serum this morning. i saw a draw. i think they both did very well and did what they needed to do. joe biden did a lot better than president obama and that's what he was being compared, to and i think paul ryan held his own against a very seasoned, one of the most veteran politicians in america today. they went to to toe, and i think the american people won. we saw a very good energetic debate where we saw two very clearly defined positions on practically everyish you a. >> so richard, you're a democrat, did you also drink some of that truth serum with anna? >> i missed the truth serum this morning. listen, i think that juden -- joe biden gets an a-plus from democrat
is on for the catholic vote. according to this pew forum on religion and public life, neither obama nor romney has a consistent lead among catholic voters as a whole. you see they're each polling at 40%. back in 2004, more than half of catholic voters chose president bush, even though his opponent, john kerry, is catholic. in 2008, more than half of catholic voters chose obama. flash forward to this year, both parties had america's highest profile catholic, new york archbishop timothy dolan give the closing. and i want to bring in eric mara podi. you live this, study this. conservative catholics would never vote for obama and biden because of their views on abortion, more progressive catholics question the morality of the romney/ryan budget choices. which do you believe is the more predominant view among american catholics? >> i think it is close to split dead even on this. i traveled around the country and talked to people and report on this all over. we see a pretty even divide and i think the two gentlemen we saw on the stage, vice president biden and congressman ryan are the perfect embodiment
